PubMed Commons Journal Clubs

PubMed Commons Journal Clubs is an initiative to capture discussions of scientific publications and connect them to citations in PubMed.

This initiative is currently open to journal clubs holding regular discussions for research, graduate and postgraduate education, or continuing professional education. Traditional or virtual formats are welcome. A PubMed Commons member who participates in the journal club serves as guarantor, responsible under the PubMed Commons guidelines.

Read more about this initiative on the PubMed Commons Blog.

PubMed Commons Journal Club comments appear just like other comments in PubMed. When you see a comment from a Journal Club, just click on their name to view their comment page. The comment page includes a link to their profile, which provides more information about the Journal Club and where you can find them online.
